Sea Salt Scrub


This week we’ll consider all things salty.

To begin, I’m making a salt scrub scented with Sea Salt Fragrance Oil. It’s a simple place to start.

Scrubs are a great way to bring the spa experience home. I find that my extra dry hands love a quick wash followed by a scrub treatment then topped off with a wonderful moisturizer. This week we’ll make all three: soap, scrub, and moisturizer.

To make the scrub, you’ll need to gather just a few supplies and join me in the workroom.

Notes

The sea salt I have on hand is a bit coarse, and I thought of running it through a grinder to make it finer, but I decided to try it as is. I discovered I liked the extra exfoliation the coarser salt provided. Use any coarseness of salt you like in this scrub; the coarseness of the salt won’t affect the amount of oils needed.

This is not a super oily scrub, but it does a great job moisturizing my hands. I hope you’ll give it a try!
